Tracing a pedigree back in history

To celebrate our 3rd Birthday, PandEcats is launching a new website just for those breeders who enjoy (or are obsessed by) tracing their cat's pedigree. The website will present a collection of searchable pedigree databases - just enter your cat's name and see a pedigree!

The name of this new website is...

The website is being launched with three Persian/Exotic/Himalayan databases you can search:

  • 50,000 pedigrees donated by the late Martha Kohlmeyer of Odin Persians
  • 87,000 pedigrees collected by the late Peter Romich of Grandaries Exotics
  • 3000 pedigrees from Kathy Durdick of Ristokat Himalayans.

We hope to add more databases in the future.

Each database added to the website will be named after the person donating it - and will include a photo and link to their website.

PandEcats is assuming all the costs of maintaining the website, Kathy Durdick of Ristokat Himalayans is donating her considerable expertise to adding each database to the website and making it "searchable" , and Lee Harper of Mockingbird Persians & Exotics has designed the look of the website.

If you have a database, we hope you consider adding it to the website, helping to build an enduring legacy for all cat breeders.
is interested in including databases of all breeds... so pass the word along to your non-Persian/Exotic breeder friends. This is an awesome way to contribute to your breed and the breeders of the future.

We also hope you will take the banner below and add it to you website with a link to

Your cat can be a star!
